Jason Statham was born in Shirebrook, Derbyshire, England on 26 July, 1967, although some sources say he's born in 1972. His father Barry Statham was a street seller and singer, and his mother Eileen was a dancer. The Englishman soon moved to Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, and began learning martial arts and football. During his schooling, he also practiced diving and became a part of his country's national diving squad. In 1990, Statham represented England at the Commonwealth Games in three different diving categories. Two years later, he was ranked number 12 in the world as a platform diver. Statham was soon noticed by a sports promotion agency who signed him on as a model for French Connection. During this time, he appeared in numerous music videos whilst simultaneously selling fake perfumes and jewelry in the street's black market in order to make ends meet.
